I don't know it exactly, but I can give you some of the info.

She grates boiled carrot, potato and beets on a pie plate and adds a mixture of mayo and sour cream sort of like a binder.

You start with a layer of coarsly grated potato, sprinkle s & p then a very thin coat of the mayo mixture. Next add the grated carrot with the same toppings, then the beets being careful not to turn everything purple. She wears latex gloves while doing the beets. Then the potato again and the carrot again. Add a top layer of sliced hard boiled egg, a little more carrot and chopped scallions.

I can live off of this stuff. Between this salad and my cold pasta salad I barely eat meat anymore.

The beet salad is simillar to one they make in Russia or Georgia. There's only a little left from the last batch, so I'll get some pics and more info next week when we.....get that? "WE" make a new one.

I like to cube the beets and roast them...using gloves, of course! Drizzle a bit of olive oil, sprinkling of kosher salt, and that's about it.

I never had roasted beets. Sounds interesting. Do they get a crust like potatoes do?

Beets me!!!! I don't think I have ever tried a beet. By the way it is being described, it does not sound like something I would like, but I will try anything at least once!

Mom use to make pickled beets with hard boild eggs... she loved the stuff... I could not stand it! I think I ate a few of the eggs, but the red color just gets to me after a bit.

If you leave them uncovered when you roast them, yes, they get a type of skin on them. If you cover them, they steam and roast at the same time, leaving the entire product softer.

Yep, they get "crusty" just like roasting potatoes or broccoli, or just about anything else, and that's the part I like

I will roast a bunch of different veggies, grouped together because they can roast at different times (shallots, tomatoes, beets, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms) then toss with some pasta, add more kosher or gray salt, a drizzle more of olive oil. Makes a great meal!

to me, beets truely taste like dirt, the tops and the bottoms, and the smell, raw or cooking, tends to gag me

I was trained to determine folks food likes and dislikes, and beets was a very common food dislike in the older population
